    If you are using dummy shells, what type are you using ?

    I am using these. They are easy to handle and work ok, but, they seem to wear out pretty fast ? Last time i used them, one shell got "stuck" in the magtube. It could go back and forth but not come out :D so i had to unscrew the magtube.

    Or silicone caulk. Trim off the open crimps.

    Well, that would be easier and cheaper too.

    Jolly good show mate.

    Just take some shot shell cases and fill them with expanding insulation foam that you get in a can from any big box store. Once dry simple cut off the crimp portion to the right case length. I've found that hacksaw with a fine tooth blade works well.

    One cheap can of foam can make hundreds of dummy shells.

    Regards

    Lots of ways to create dummy rounds. Dummy rounds are for loading drills. They should have some weight to them.

    Snap Caps are fine for dry-firing but they don't simulate the weight of a loaded shell.
